In Neil Berkeley's fascinating, very funny and sometimes quite melancholy "Gilbert," we get to see the hunched-over, eccentric, surprisingly thoughtful man behind the comedic myth...

The film's least persuasive passages come when some of the interviewed comics decry what they see as PC culture... But if you're a fan of Gottfried, you'd know he's always tried to be on the right side of the joke...

A tenderly observed, remarkably insightful keeper. No joke.

But while Gilbert may not break ground with its angle, its contemplative take on what separates Gottfried as a performer from Gottfried as a person is interesting enough to drive the film, even if you may not particularly like his stand-up.

You may or may not walk away from "Gilbert" a Gilbert Gottfried fan, but either way the movie makes you glad he exists.

The insights offered from the almost two-dozen show biz luminaries are not always commonplace, and Gottfried is always an interesting screen presence, even when he's far removed from his persona.
